    Advice to Management

    People are human and when speak with patients, patients want someone who they can speak with and relate with who understands them. Not scripted or automated response. Patients want someone they can relax and speak with. Not stiff as a broad reading from a script. You want absolute perfection. It does not exist. People should be allowed to make a few mistakes. Especially when relating to patients. People are human, not stiff corporate script management.
